Cold front brings back winter:
A strong cold front will blast through Saturday evening. Temperatures will go from the 70s to the 50s in a matter of minutes. We have a 10% chance of rain Saturday afternoon but the story will be the sharp temperature drop. Temperatures nosedive to the 30s Sunday morning. A freeze watch goes into effect Saturday evening for counties south of I-10 with a warning in place for the counties to the north. You do not need to worry about your exposed pipes. Temperatures need to fall below 20 degrees for pipes to burst.
The next several graphics will walk you through the cold blast. We’ll start with Saturday’s hour by hour forecast. Then I’ll focus on Sunday morning’s temperature, wind and wind chill. It will feel like the 20s Sunday morning.
Morning temperatures will be in the 30s Sunday through Tuesday. Another cold front is expected Thursday.
